Nine Questions 

Chad Goebel has been designing the interiors of restaurants and nightclubs in the Southwest for the past nine years. His most recent work can be seen at Level Bar and Lounge on River Road and Campbell Avenue. In his free time, he is a slave to his house and his dog, Simon.

What was the first concert you ever saw?

Billy Ocean at the Tucson Convention Center in 1987. My mom dragged me kicking and screaming, because my dad didn't want to go. I ended up loving it!

What CDs are in your changer right now?

The Shins, Wincing the Night Away; Sade, Lovers Live; Franz Ferdinand, Franz Ferdinand; Cesaria Evora, Miss Perfumado; Everything but the Girl, Amplified Heart.

How many total albums do you own (CDs, vinyl, cassettes, 8-tracks)?

Mostly everything I own anymore is digital. I have only a handful of CDs left--I would say about 30.

Do you download music, and if so, legally or illegally?

I'm not smart enough to figure out how to download songs illegally, so it is good ol' iTunes for me.

What was the first album you owned?

Holy shit! It was Disney's Mousercise. I just checked on iTunes, and it was just re-released!

What song would you like to have played at your funeral?

"Both Sides Now," Joni Mitchell.

Musically speaking, what do you love that your friends don't know about? What's your favorite guilty pleasure?

I love Christmas albums from the late '70s--Barbra Streisand and the Carpenters are just a couple. It is a holiday sing-along with me as the star every Christmas.

What band or artist changed your life, and how?

I wouldn't say that it was a band or artist that changed my life, musically speaking, but a person: My friend Sean introduced me to a whole new world of music than what I was once used to. I owe it to him that I am no longer ashamed of the music I listen to ... well, most of it.

Figurative gun to your head, what is your favorite album of all time?

Sade, Love Deluxe.
